Powered Paragliding is the safest, cheapest, and most convenient way to have your own personal flying machine. You don’t even need a pilot’s license, and it takes less than a week to learn how to fly one!
To sum it up, it’s basically a “parachute with a backpack motor” or a “motorized version
of Paragliding.” There are two different types of Powered Paragliders or “Paramotors.”
The most common is called a “Foot-Launch” unit, where the pilot wears a backpack-style
2-stroke motor, and has to physically run to become airborne.
The second type is called a “Quad” or “Trike” unit, where the motor is mounted to a
go-kart-style platform with wheels. To decide which type of unit is appropriate for you,
it’s best that you talk to an experienced instructor or dealer. Many factors like weight,
age, physical ability, takeoff elevation, and flying-style determine which gear is best
suited for an individual. Most people are familiar with Parasailing, Sky-Diving, Base
Jumping, or Wing Suits. Powered Paragliding however, is still a foreign concept to many
people and you don’t have to be a “thrill-seeker” to enjoy it. Powered Paragliding is all about “low and slow leisure flight.” The best part is ANYONE can do it!
